Ways to Give

Planned Legacy .

Make Army’s Legacy a part of your will or final wishes.  Let your legacy last forever.  

 

Planned giving creates tax benefits for donors while supporting our mission.  You may wish to make a gift through your will or trust, use different types of assets or create a gift which pays you income back. Each of these options may be considered legacy or planned gifts.

 

Determining what gift is right for you is just as important as making the gift. The correct plan for you balances what you wish to accomplish for yourself, your family, and your charitable interests in your overall estate and financial plans.

 

Making a planned gift makes you a member of Our Legacy Circle.
